Holy Week and Easter

We invite you to journey with us through the solemnity of Holy Week commemorating Christ’s death on the cross to the joy of celebrating His resurrection at Easter. Please join us at one of our many Holy Week and Easter services and events. Please note that some services fill to capacity, so make plans to arrive early.

On Palm Sunday Grace Cathedral welcomes the Girls’ Choir from St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, who will be joining the Choir of Men and Boys for our 11am Liturgy.

Listen to a sampling of the beautiful music that our Choir of Men and Boys will be performing during Holy Week and Easter on a Spotify playlist below.
